Last update:July 18,2017

 What is the “Kansai Consular Forum”?

METI Kansai established the “Kansai Consular Forum” in November 2008 in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Osaka Liaison Office ; Kinki Regional Agricultural Administration Office, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries ; Kinki Regional Development Bureau, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism ; Kansai District Transport Bureau, Ministry of Land,  Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism ; and Kansai Economic Federation (Kankeiren).

The Kansai Consular Forum has been organizing “meetings” and “Kansai tours,” primarily targeting consulate generals and overseas economic organizations.

The Kansai Consular Forum aims to promote the “Kansai brand” associated with industries, tourism, food, agriculture, the urban infrastructure, etc. in the Kansai area around the world, through consulate generals and overseas economic organizations, while taking advantage of the fact that a number of consulate generals are located in the Kansai area.  Further, it also aims to attract visitors from overseas to the area, promote economic exchanges and create business opportunities with overseas companies.
